People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People continued to receive safe care. People were protected from abuse and risks to people’s health and wellbeing were assessed, managed and regularly reviewed. There were enough staff to ensure that people's needs were met safely. People received their medicines as prescribed and there were practices in place to ensure prevention and control of infection protected people. Lessons had been learnt following analysis of incidents.

The care given was effective. The premises were being refurbished to meet the needs of people using the service. People’s needs and expected outcomes were assessed and regularly reviewed. People were supported by staff who had relevant training, skills and experience to care for them. People had access to sufficient food and drink throughout the day. Staff worked with other health and social care professionals to achieve good outcomes for people’s health and wellbeing.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

The staff were caring, and we received positive feedback from people and their relatives. People had supportive and meaningful relationships with staff. People’s independence was promoted, and staff responded promptly to any discomfort and understood people’s needs.

The staff and provider continued to be responsive. People had personalised care plans that promoted independence. Staff identified people’s information and communication needs by assessing them. People were encouraged to participate in meaningful activities and access the community to avoid social isolation. People and relatives knew how to make a complaint and felt confident they would be listened to. People’s preferences and choices in relation to end of life care had been explored.

The service was now well-led. All staff shared the positive culture and vision to support people’s health and wellbeing. There was a clear line of organisation; staff were clear what their individual and team responsibilities were. The registered manager understood their duty of candour and responsibilities of registration with us. People, their relatives and visiting health and social care professionals were involved in improvement of the service. Regular audits took place to measure the success of the service and to continue to develop it. The provider was transparent, open and collaborative with external agencies.
